Abstract

The Airborne Prism EXperiment (APEX) is an airborne pushbroom imaging spectrometer for Earth observation. Its products will become available in 2011. APEX is currently prepared for final acceptance configuration completing final hardware upgrades, refined calibration methodologies and test flights. APEX is composed of an airborne dispersive pushbroom imaging spectrometer, a Calibration Home Base (CHB) for instrument calibration and a data Processing and Archiving Facility (PAF) for operational product generation and delivery. A unique In-Flight Characterization (IFC) unit is integrated within the sensor optical head, providing pre- and post- data-acquisition characterization monitoring the instruments spectral and radiometric stability. This paper outlines the activities performed with a special focus on system calibration and validation procedures, as well as preliminary measurement results.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
